Chevy Colorado Towing Capacity by Trim Configuration

 

Shopping for the right Colorado? First, you’ll need to choose a model and engine. Luckily, you have plenty of options, including:

  • 2.5L 4-Cylinder Engine: All models that boast the standard Chevy Colorado 2.5L engine can tow up to 3,500 pounds.
  • 3.6L V6 Engine: Choose the available Chevy Colorado 3.6L V6 and add on the Trailering Package, and you’ll be able to tow close to the maximum towing capacity, or 7,000-pounds. Without the Trailering Package, you’ll be able to tow up to 3,500 pounds with the same engine.
  • Duramax® 2.8L Turbo-Diesel 4-Cylinder Engine: Choose the available Chevy Colorado Duramax® diesel engine, and you’ll set yourself up to two up to 7,700 pounds!

 

Considering the Chevy Colorado ZR2 for its ample features? You’ll be glad to know that this tough midsize Chevy truck offers a maximum towing capacity of up to 5,000 pounds. What can you tow with that amount? For reference, a 5,000-pound towing capacity lets you tow a few ATVs, dirt bikes, or similar small equipment. Looking to tow far more than even the most-capable Colorado? No problem. Consider a new Chevy Silverado 1500 instead!
